Sparks, NV (August 5, 2022) – Injuries stemmed from a serious car accident that took place on a major highway in Sparks on Friday evening, August 5.
According to Sparks Police Department officials, the accident happened in the eastbound lanes of I-80 around the area of McCarran Boulevard. It is believed that several vehicles were traveling in the area when they collided with each other due to reasons that are not yet known. The involved vehicles were badly damaged in the collision and had to be towed from the scene.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. One or more victims were injured as a result of the crash. The injured parties were treated on scene and then rushed to local hospitals for further treatment.
Due to the severity of the accident, a large portion of the roadway was blocked in the area for some time. This led to delays until police fully cleared the scene.
Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the collision. They will update with new information as it becomes available.
